Vismara V69 Nacira – Everything in its (right) place


The new De Beaufort and Verdier designed Vismara Marine Nacira 69 employs some of the best elements of Imoca design, being adapted and optimised for two-handed racing and cruising. The hardware used aboard this cutting edge yacht had to meet very high utility and performance targets. Much of the gear is bespoke, designed and fabricated to order by UBI Maior. Many of the more complex parts were made using a 3D printer to save on time and materials. Seahorse Magazine takes a closer look at the work of Vismara and UBI Maior aboard this groundbreaking new build.

When the builders at Vismara were approached to use their well-honed skills in crafting a beautiful new luxury performance yacht designed by Axel De Beaufort/Guillame Verdier, they needed to be assured their suppliers to the project met their own high standards. They chose UBI Maior as the supplier for most components of the deck hardware and sail-handling systems.

The vision for this new 69-footer called Nacira 69 was one not yet attempted in this genre: take the best elements of the Imoca 60 class yachts and adapt them for shorthanded luxury racing and cruising. Built in pre-preg carbon with a deck-stepped mast placed well aft towards the longitudinal centre of the yacht, Nacira has a more open interior for cruising along with the very latest in offshore performance design from the creators of many Imoca 60s as well as larger ocean greyhounds such as Comanche.

The hardware supplied by UBI Maior includes a new design of headsail furler, custom fairleads and deck cleats, gennaker sheet blocks, 8-ton turning blocks for halyards, a downhaul system, jib sheet inhaul and outhaul, wide-sheave tulip blocks for runners, and a 1:4 hydraulic mainsheet system mounted inside the boom.
